Obituary of Gary Yost

A funeral service will be held on Tuesday, August 25, 2015 at 2PM, at the Parshall Chapel, Parshall, Colorado.


Gerald Eugene Yost went to be with his Lord on August 20, 2015 at his

home in Kremmling , CO at the age of 71 years. Gary was born April 6,

1962 in Colorado Springs, CO at Penrose Hospital. His parents names

are Alvin and Dorothy Yost. He grew up with brothers James Alvin,

Robert Milton and sister, Patricia. Gary attended Saddleback College

in California. He married his High School sweetheart, Norma Bishop in

July of 1962 in Paris, Idaho. They have two daughters Suzette Marie

and Linda Kay Yost. he had a very interesting work career over the

years; he worked at House of Hydraulics designing Hydraulics for an

airplane used in a Disney movie and for the "Jaws" movie ride at

Universal Studios. Gary, then worked for Edwards Laboratories in

California making casts for heart valves for humans. Later, he was a

specialist master in mechanics; he helped design and build a speed

boat that set a world record. He retired from Missouri Metals, where

he was a specialist in titanium, designing parts for the space

industry and military contracts for Boeing and Bell Helicopter. He was

a member of First Baptist Church in O'Fallon, MO; he served as the

Director of the Singles Department. Being outdoors was something that

he really enjoyed, especially fishing. NASCAR races were another sport

that topped his list. When he retired, he and Norma bought land in

Kremmling CO and were building a house that has a sweeping,

breathtaking view of the valley. He felt one of his greatest

accomplishments was a trip to Ecuador. His nephew, Nate, coordinated

the trip. Gary went with his brother Jim and Nate. Jim and his wife,

Kathie had been a missionaries in Ecuador for 14 years working with

the Auca Indians. The trip was to educate them in the way motors work;

Gary had come up with some innovative ways to teach that to them. They

were just throwing tools away if they wouldn't start or run right.

Gary put toolkits together for each man. He removed the case from a

motor and replaced one side of it with a transparent plastic one, so

the men could watch what happened when the motor was running. He

taught them to repair equipment also boat motors. He is survived by

his wife of 53 years, Norma, 2 daughters, Suzette and Linda, his

mother, Dorothy, 2 brothers, Jim and Rob, 1 sister, Pat and 5

grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, many aunts and uncles plus a

host of cousins. He was preceded in death by his father, Alvin Yost.

Gary was a friend that i really admired. He was a hard worker, never complained, just knew what had to be done and he did it. He was a gentle person and quiet but knew how to do everything from taking a machine or car apart to building a house, and everything in between. Gary was a devoted and loving husband to Norma for over 50 years, and a loving father. Through his faith in Jeses Christ, i'm confident he is now home with the Lord and we can find solace in Revelation 14:13 Then I heard a voice from heaven say "write blessed are the dead who die with the Lord from now on" yes says the spirit they will rest from their labor for their deeds will follow them. We will miss you greatly Gary

May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be ever at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields, and until we meet again, may God hold you in the hollow of his hand.~Irish Blessing Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
